Two images of the GOLDENROD SHOWBOAT, before and after the steel hull was added. (1) In August, 1947 with the towboat WENONAH, which became so dilapidated that she was stripped, towed across the river to East St. Louis and burned to scrap in 1951. (2) At the St. Louis levee in 1971 with the excursion boat MISSISSIPPI BELLE alongside and the BECKY THATCHER visible at the stern.
